No, this is essentially BeOS-period, but there's not much need for the
layout API in this case (though it might have obviated some of the present
code).  I think it's just a matter of adding a ResizeTo based on the views
that *are* resized already.

I haven't tried to add it to the patch I'm submitting, but as Sean has already
expressed approval (:-)) I'll probably put it in the next rev.
